MMT works diligently to ensure that students without the resources to attend a class at the Conservatory can still benefit from a theatre education through scholarships and outreach classes!

Thanks to our education sponsors, merit and need-based scholarships are available to students through a simple application process.  These scholarships provide students with the opportunity to study with industry professionals and perform at a professional theatre! Contact Director of Education Travis Kendrick for more information or download the financial assistance application.

If you would like to sponsor a student with a scholarship, please contact our Development Director, John Levin, at

The John Sailer Scholarship Fund

sailer-obit-photoMill Mountain Theatre is honored to receive gifts in memory of John J. Sailer, a colleague whose art and creativity provided extraordinary scenic and lighting designs for decades of our productions. Following his death in July, John’s family and friends established a fund for scholarships to enable students interested in technical aspects of theatrical productions to attend classes at Mill Mountain Theatre. Contributors can contact John Levin at 540-342-5761 or for details.


Share The Magic

Live theatre is a powerful influence for children, nourishing their imaginations and inspiring them to rise above boundaries that seem to limit their success. For teenagers, theatre experience and skills often open paths to careers by affirming interests as valuable talents.

Not every family in our community can afford to give their kids the experiences offered by Mill Mountain Theatre. That’s why we ask for contributions to support what we can give to families for their children. The Share the Magic fund underwrites free Young Audience shows, provide scholarships for MMT Conservatory classes and gives complimentary tickets for main-stage shows to clients of partner charities. This season those charities are Apple Ridge Farms, Child Health Investment Partnership of Roanoke, Goodwill Industries of the Valleys, HopeTree Family Services, The Turning Point, West End Center for Youth and YMCA After School.

To participate in this valuable initiative, contact John Levin at 540.342.5761 or
